Starting a business is not as easy as the idea sounds. It involves a lot of factors that if not properly looked into, might start affecting the sales and purchases of the business. One of such factors that can affect a business negatively or positively is your location and visibility.
If customers can't find you because there are bigger and brighter firm signages in your location, your business is far from the Main Street, or due to local ordinances you cannot advertise your business the way you would want to do, it is doomed.
The best solution is to look for an escape route, and I have them on my tips.
Use your vehicles
Often times we lose sight of the marketing potential our car, trucks and delivery van can do for our business. With a well-crafted signage on the sides of a truck or car, it draws attention to where ever the owner is operating his business.
It will also serve as a form of advert to someone who hasn't heard about your business, or it's location before.
Never overlook little signs to promote.
Promotion doesn't have to be extremely big before its impact can be felt. A little computer graphics on the windows of your firm can make a huge difference if someone is trying to locate your office.
It may not be a permanent thing per say, but a touch of the company logo and signature on the windows of your firm can sometimes go a long way.
During celebrations like Christmas, a little gift given to customers with the company signature boldly displayed on it helps in boosting the impression people have about your product and image. Some firms have gone into the production of wipers, paper towels, etc. with their signage on it, just to make a point.
Illuminate your surroundings
Wherever your business is located, it is a territory that you have to mark with your signature. The best way to achieve that is through lighting. Lights can produce special effects to not just your surroundings but also your products when viewed under them.
Use retro lights if possible to showcase your billboard. Make beautiful designs with your views to make them stand out. Showcase your product in glistening lights and draw as much attention as possible from passer-bys.
Take the initiative
Do not wait until you are told that the location of your business has low visibility before you take the initiative to revamp it. Most signages become outdated with time as popular kinds of stuff take over.
Place special things in unique places if the ordinance in your city permits it and be creative about it. You can raise a canopy with your business initials on it all in the bid to offer excellent customers service delivery.
It is important to know the ordinances of a city concerning certain level of promotion, to serve as a guide on how you should come up with yours. It would make no sense to go through all these troubles only to be caught by the ambit of the law.
